Almost two decades ago, the journey began to strengthen an association with a new perspective, which overcomes the short-term actions of traditional organizations, many of them propitiated by short or medium-term projects, which, at the end of the financing, they also followed the course of extinction. Similarly, the welfare approach of the State and some non-governmental organizations, NGOs, determined that it is thought that only external aid to communities can generate development processes.
From these learnings, the Kallari Association implements an organizational model based on concepts and definitions related to the understanding of each of the links in the value chain of products such as cocoa and handicrafts; linkage of other local actors such as mestizo communities; do not mix partisan interests with the activities of the organization; and to believe firmly in the abilities of the Kallari people to generate their own income; and in this way, contribute to the construction of a more equitable development model for the whole of society and friendly to the environment.
Kallari began in 2003, legally establishing itself through the MICIP, which subsequently became MIPRO, and with the reform of the organic structure of the constitution, its management became the parent of the SEPS.
The Chakra of KALLARI
It is a productive space located within the farm, managed by the family under an organic and biodiverse approach, valuing ancestral knowledge, where cocoa is found together with timber, fruit, medicinal, artisan, edible and ornamental species. Managed with a distribution that allows a balanced and sustainable production that serves for family consumption and sale, conserving the agroecological and cultural management of production processes, avoiding the production of monoculture.
